station owner to that surveillance tape now in the hands of federal agents. traci grant spoke with anxious homeowners being led into the neighborhood tonight but first the biggest toll of that blast, the victims and families torn apart. >> reporter: we are live right here on fairmont at the border of the homes that made it. those with green tags you see there and those that did not. down fremont you can see burned out shells of cars and skeletal remains of the homes. among those killed in the blast were mother and daughter and a college student, jessica mora s morales. >> they lost an incredible girl who is an incredible friend and classmate and it's just a huge, huge loss. >> helen roy and had her daughter julia have known jan esse
6:01pm
janessa and her mother since they started kindergarten. >> she was kind and loving and caring. she was nice to everyone. she was the kind of child that everyone wanted to emulate and her mom was exactly the same way. >> it really upset me because she was one of my closest friends. and it was hard. >> reporter: the school principal says janessa was supposed to be with her dad but had too much homework so she went home instead. mom and dad were texting updates to each other shortly before the blast that killed mother and daughter. >> they're struggling day-to-day. they feel and they appreciate the community support. they know that we're there for them but it's just a monumental struggle. >> reporter: neighbors of the jessica morales are grappling with her sudden death. >> it's sad to see a life taken
6:02pm
like that. >> morales and her boyfriend were together when she was killed. he barely escaped with severe burns to nearly half his body. >> she was a good kid. definitely, you know, hard worker. she went to school. she graduated. she did what she was supposed to do. >> reporter: just a short time ago we saw three bus loads full of people being driven through here with police escort. we understand that many of those folks are the ones who live in these 37 homes that were completely destroyed and this was their first time seeing the damage firsthand. understandably, there were some tears. >> what an emotional experience for them. thank you. now the ntsb briefed us on the latest investigation details coming out of san bruno. the agency's vice chairman says the ruptured portion of the gas pipe will be shipped to washington tonight. that piece was put into a wooden
6:03pm
crate this morning. they will inspect all three segments as they try to learn what caused the explosion. that examination will determine what the pipe suffered from. an hour ago the agency said there was no obvious preexplosion damage but they'll have to do more checking. ntsb is looking into whether seismic activity may have contributed to the breach of that pipe. >> we've seen the flames and the blow torch that reached 100 feet into the sky. now we have video of the first seconds after that massive gas explosion. a gas station surveillance camera caught the chaos and confusion that erupted as the fireball ignited and sent flames racing through a neighborhood. >> reporter: customers have no idea what is about to hit them. first a wooshing sound you can't hear on tape that turns their heads. >> you have to watch the debris first that flies. >> reporter: then a sight so horrific it sends them running.
6:04pm
>> this guy just took off without even putting gas in. >> reporter: human instinct dictates you run away from danger. >> there's a lady with a little baby running for her life. >> reporter: sometimes instinct is a funny thing. >> you see some people running towards the fire. there's one. he's got a house or something. >> reporter: at 1 minute 29 seconds into the explosion, a police car shows up to stop people from heading down the road. a customer finishes what he started when this all began pumping up his car with gas. more police. at roughly 6 minutes, 30 seconds, two fire trucks arrive. the video from this gas station is deceptive. it makes the fireball appear to be closer than it was. the source of those flames, the gas line rupture, was at the bottom of this street, a good four to five blocks away. >> it's so big that it looks
6:05pm
like it is there. >> reporter: the owner handed the footage over to ntsb and investigators said it will be helpful in trying to figure out what caused this gas pipeline to explode. >> he was really, really very impressed with the picture and everything. >> reporter: in an bruno, bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> any wonder that one customer was so scared that he drove off without paying. yesterday he went back to settle with the gas station operators. pg&e tonight says there are no strings attached to the $100 million fund to help rebuild that damaged san bruno neighborhood. utility officials talked about the money and other issues today at their own news conference. among all of the technical explanations about gas delivery and pipeline inspections, the simplest question was asked twice. what happened? >> again, i'm not going to speculate on what could have happened. there are too many different
6:06pm
things that can go into any kind of event like this and so for us to speculate, it doesn't help. it doesn't help the citizens. it doesn't help the ntsb. it doesn't help the public to start to speculate with all kinds of different reasons that this could have happened. >> pg&e told residents in the affected area they would immediately give them a check up to $50,000 to help them get started. as we mentioned just moments ago, now you get to see it. the 28-foot long section of that underground pipe that ruptured will be shipped to washington for a detailed examination. that's happening tonight. that piece along with sections on either side of ten feet long were put into wooden crates early this morning. ntsb investigators will inspect all three segments as they try to figure out exactly what caused the explosion. it will take up to ten days to comb through the evidence in the neighborhood. >> some of the people who survived the explosion still don't know if their homes are standing or if the things that make a house a home survived the
6:07pm
intense heat as flames spread through the community. traci grant is there tonight and some very emotional homecomings today. >> reporter: absolutely. take a look at this image behind us. this construction worker was actually on top of that utility pole. he's just gotten down. the flag is blowing in the distance. it was an iconic image really, symbolic of what the people in this neighborhood are trying to do. they're trying to rise from the ashes right along with that utility pole is there used to be houses and now there's nothing but dirt. now today was the first time that all of the residents impacted by the explosion were able to sit together in the same room and receive some vital information. >> i picked up the dog, run around the house trying to find her leash, grabbed my purse and
6:08pm
ran downstairs outside to the car. >> reporter: since they escaped the explosion that rocked their neighborhood on thursday, they spent nights in various locations. inside the car. at a friend's house and in a dog friendly hotel. ever since her husband returned from the business trip and joined her at the hotel, they have been anxious to find out what became of their home. they found it on a list of green tagged houses over the weekend but they're not allowed to return. she says it's a small price to pay. >> i feel very lucky. this is a pain in the butt here waiting and waiting but i feel very, very lucky. i don't know how god picks these things. >> reporter: city administrators met with residents of the 84 homes impacted by the explosion today to try to explain what happens next. cameras weren't allowed inside because san bruno's mayor says they were trying to preserve the privacy of the traumatized homeowners. >> one afternoon they're cooking dinner and 30 minutes later there's nothing left of their lives. >> reporter: this afternoon bus tours started taking homeowners
6:09pm
to get their first look at their homes since the flame was extinguished. each homeowner paired up with a building inspector. those owning yellow tagged houses are given one hour to grab belongings and be escorted out. red tagged homeowners don't get the chance to get too close to their damaged homes. the city says all permits and fees connected to rebuilding any of these homes will be waived. >> it's not just physical rebuilding. it's mental. it will take quite a while. >> reporter: take a look at this house. fire has completely eaten away the roof of that home. that's one of the red tagged structures that is sitting out here now. just two minutes ago another bus tour just came through here. these buses aren't spending much time on the street. they contain people who are owners of these red tagged homes. the homes that people will not
6:10pm
be able to go back into that are a total loss. the mayor told us today that he's working with some local realty companies to come up with rental properties that these displaced only owners will be able to stay in temporarily but free of charge. live in san bruno, traci grant, nbc bay area news. >> at least close to home. thank you very much. our coverage obviously continues at nbcbayarea.com. we've posted raw video of that fireball that you saw from the gas station and the pg&e news conference. now, a little bit later in the broadcast see how you can find out if one of these pipelines runs under your home. we'll show you at 6:30. also ahead tonight, the international tug of war over one of the cal graduates locked up in iran. here what they want now. apps are so hot they have their own convention. welcome to app nation.

politics and puff. they stood together in oakland to discuss the legalization of marijuana. prop 19 would give cities authority over the cultivation, sale and taxation of marijuana. some law enforcement groups say legalization of pot would allow them to focus on more serious
6:14pm
crimes and undermine the criminals who now control the trade. >> we support prop 19 because we want control of a market that's dominated by gangs and drug dealers. they have control over this market right now. >> a number of other law enforcement groups are strongly opposed to prop 19 arguing that it will allow employees in high risk jobs to come to work stoned. gubernatorial candidate jerry brown apologized to bill clinton after a meg whitman ad that shows experts from a 1992 presidential primary debate during which clinton attacked brown as a man who was loose with the facts. in los angeles over the weekend the video captured brown saying the ad has clinton lying about me. in the video that was posted on "time" magazine's website, brown goes on to say clinton is a nice guy but who is to say he always
6:15pm
told the truth? only nbc bay area can bring you insight into the political stories of the day. you can find it on our blog at nbcbayarea.com. today's feature report, the real deal about an attack ad against meg whitman and big oil's big issue in the golden state. just click on prop 0 on the top of nbcbayarea.com. getting 63 police officers back on the streets of oakland is a measure on the november ballot. it fixes measure y passed several years ago that requires the police department maintain 803 cops in order for the city to collect a $20 million tax a year. the city recently laid off 80 officers and proponents say measure bb allows the state to continueo get the money even in these tough times. >> as a result of the problem solving officers being pulled back for now, that is making it very difficult. we don't have a way to really connect with the police department the way we did
6:16pm
before. >> also on the ballot is an annual parcel tax of $360 per home designated for public safety and for keeping officers on the force. we now live on the planet of the apps. they're taking over our phones and our time. so maybe it's time that apps got their own show. the first app nation came to the bay area today. scott budman put his finger on what's hot. >> reporter: there are apps to connect with friends, apps to play games, apps for just about anything. >> entertainment, paying bills, ordering food. >> reporter: it makes sense that apps now have their own convention. this is app nation reminding us that laptops are so last year now it's all about phones and ipads and talking on your phone, out of date. now it's all about the mobile
6:17pm
touch. >> i call it the synthetic society. it's what we're moving into which is everything a version of it is always with you. >> reporter: small companies like mob clicks, jump tap and g wallet have apps so does intel with apps on their netbooks. >> people are looking for the new thing to be more productive as people are looking for the new thing to watch streaming videos or games for the children or productivity matters. they are looking for these devices to solve these. >> reporter: because apps know where you are, they're even changing the way we shop. >> let's say at bloomingdale's, we can target you in the vicinity of shopping areas. >> reporter: all is not perfect in app land. after all for these small companies to grow, they need to make money and that's tough to do 99 cents at a time.
6:18pm
>> the app model gives us a chance to get in front of people. monetizing is a different issue we need to deal with. at least we get some chips in the big game. >> reporter: the question is can they cash in those chips? in san francisco, scott budman, nbc bay area news. >> men are 30% more likely to take an interest in mobile phone ads than women. ad makers are taking note of that. a popular san francisco sandwich shop what's getting evicted is going out with a bang. dozens of hungry diners lined up down the sidewalk for a last chance at an ike's sandwich. the shop was closing today after the owners could not fight off a city eviction order. some neighbors complained to the city of big crowds and smell of bacon. customers say the closing will leave a hole in the neighborhood and an empty place in their
6:19pm
stomachs. >> i'll stroll along with my dogs and wait in line for a sandwich almost every day in the afternoon. i'll have more money in my pocket but i'll be hungrier. >> beginning tomorrow the employees will begin carpooling to other locations on the peninsula. he's searching for a new san francisco location for his business and ike's is staying open until midnight tonight. >> jeff ranieri, did the winds have anything to do with that smell of bacon? >> always attribute that to the weather. we're looking at wind out here throughout san francisco. as we head throughout tonight. overall it's about the temperatures going up and down and all over the place lately. look at today's highs. 61 in san francisco. 77 in los gatos. 77 in livermore. only 64 in san rafael. about 10 to 15 degrees off the mark of where we should be this time of year and dropping off to plenty of low and mid 60s throughout the peninsula and
6:20pm
even here in the east bay. we'll continue to go down as we head throughout tonight with not only cool air aloft but fog near the coastline near san bruno where the investigation still continues on so it looks like investigators will see more hours here of relatively clear conditions before the fog starts to set back in. meanwhile in oakland, sun is setting. you can see the array of colors. 64 with winds northwest at 14. let's look at this interesting pattern with the temperatures up over part of the weekend and then back down today. we've seen the jet stream take a far dip to the south. cool air in place but not only that we're watching an early season system sitting out here off the pacific. it does have some rainfall associated with it. still several hundred miles away from the bay area but we're going to watch this because by late week it looks like there could be a bit of rainfall for california. 6:00 a.m. tomorrow in the south bay we're starting off with
6:21pm
temperatures in the upper 50s by 11:00 a.m. cooler side with upper 60s to near 70 degrees and that sun breaking through the clouds in the south bay. 6:00 a.m. elsewhere we'll look at some of our cooler spots in the north bay with upper 40s to low 50s. as we dance toward 11:00 a.m. not much of a change with that cool air sitting across most of california. temperatures are going to have a hard time warming up tomorrow. meanwhile, if you're doing traveling possibly delays here in chicago and st. louis with some strong storms that will roll through portions of the midwest and we'll have details in our seven-day forecast of this pacific rainfall and when it could mean a slight chance of showers for the north bay. >> very well, jeff. we'll see you a bit later on. coming up, perhaps saving money on your tax. see if you can cash in on a presidential compromise with republicans. >> debit card fees. we hate to pay them and now a proposed law to shut them down taking a big hit. [ male announcer ] jerry brown's good old days.
6:22pm
but what really happened? cnn -- not me -- cnn says his assertion about his tax record was "just plain wrong." jerry brown went out there and took credit for the fact that the people of california voted for proposition 13, which lowered taxes, which he opposed. and now he's going around taking credit for it. he raised taxes as governor of california. he had a surplus when he took office and a deficit when he left. he doesn't tell the people the truth. let's go! we got a 1-2-0 in progress. what's a 1-2-0? another airline is charging up to $120 roundtrip for two bags.
